One of our November family traditions is to visit the Royal Winter Agricultural Fair. It is the largest indoor equestrian and agricultural fair in the world. We have been every year for the past five years. This year my little one loved the baby chicks.
In addition to 4,500 animals, there is always a great presence of equestrian and cattle ranching gear exhibitors and I always leave inspired and wishing I jumped horses for a living.
This cowgirl belt project has been in my mind since last year's fair, but I only recently sourced the supplies. I really liked the technicals behind Mother Huddle's Tape Measure Belt so I found some cowboy twill tape at Scrapwithstyle's Etsy Shop and instead of a d-ring used some fun western-inspired hardware. As in the tutorial, I stitched the twill tape to the cotton webbing.
Sadly, my girls do not wear jeans (pass me a tissue). But the belt looks really nice with corduroy (top photo) and denim skirts.
While we are talking ribbon, I wanted to show you the yellow grosgrain car ribbon I also found at Scrap With Style. It's really cute and goes well with the Ikea car fabric. I made this car cozy for a 3 year old boy who loves cars. The coordinating fabric is Michael Miller Tot Town (Street Stripe and its on sale right now in Canada at Tonic Living)
The car cozy tutorial is created by Sharla at My Little Gems. I have made it several times. This time I used fusible fleece and it gave the cozy a nice weight. Fusible fleece is my new interfacing crush.
So that's the scoop, have a wonderful week and thanks so much for all the great feedback on the upcycled sari post.
Y'all made my day,
